America is sweet dog that was being given away on FB because her owner was being deployed with the U.S. army and couldn't find family or a friend to take her.
We traced her microchip back to the Harris County Animal Shelter and got her records from them. We found out she was heartworm positive when she was turned in and her first owner had kept her as an outdoor dog on a chain all the time.
We took her to the vet and turns out she is still heartworm positive. Due to her specific conditions she is not a candidate for the slow kill method and will need to go through the fast kill treatment. The total cost for treatment will be close to $1,200.
